COVID-19 presents as an upper respiratory infection, with over 80,000 cases detected in Pennsylvania since early 2020. Since the virus was only recently discovered, much is still being researched including the full extent of side effects as well as a vaccine. AFC Urgent Care Northern Liberties performs the swab test, which is the most effective way to diagnose a case of the novel coronavirus.
